Alessandro Michele loves eccentricity. Of course, his Gucci Cruise Collection 2017 was also a creative firework, which fits seamlessly into the shrill look of previous collections – but this time with a decidedly British flair. Presented, quite contrary, in the venerable Westminster Abbey in London. Are we now going to worship the new Gucci collection?After Dior also Gucci showed his new cruise collection in England. The scene was no lesser place than the church where Prince William and Duchess Kate voted in 2011, not to mention that it is the traditional burial place of British monarchs: Westminster Abbey. The cool, gray walls and the historic charm formed an exciting contrast to the adventurous cruise collection, which could hardly combine more colors and patterns.
Not arbitrary, but well thought-out was the creative hodgepodge of Gucci chief designer Alessandro Michele. He took up the historic location insofar as he reproduced both a charming, British granny-chic and rock punk bonds. Vivienne Westwood sends greetings! Button-down Victorian collars, check patterns and Union Jack motifs also brought English flair to the collection.
Although the portability of entire outfits by Gucci Cruise may be debatable, individual styling ideas as well as accessories, of which there were a lot, can be excellently pulled out as a source of inspiration and individual eye-catchers. So there were fold-up nerd glasses, extra-long earrings and shoes that have several, wide straps along the calf to admire.
